One of the world’s leading sport and entertainment consultancy companies, Gemba, has announced the appointment of Claire Kelly as the general manager of Europe, as the organisation looks to grow their European expansion.

Additionally, Kelly brings extensive knowledge and experience from major data projects in the retail industry.

Commenting on her appointment, Kelly, said: “I’m tremendously excited to be joining Gemba to lead their expansion into Europe.”

“Gemba has established a fantastic reputation in the Asia Pacific region, working with some of the biggest rights holders and brands across business strategy, data infrastructure and analytics projects.

“The quality of the project work already delivered in Europe shows the appetite for Gemba’s offer on these shores.  I’m really looking forward to working with Andrew and to bringing to market a compelling offer for future clients and partners,” she said.

Condon, added: “This is a significant step for our business and builds on the recent work we have delivered across Europe.”
